Why dont feminists treat men and women equally?
If a man takes up public transport space with 'manspreading'... its wrong and rude
If a woman takes up public transport with her bags... its perfectly okay and understandable
If a man is a misogynist... his a evil hateful sexist monster
If a woman is a misandrist.. shes just a poor victim who is misunderstood
If a man commits a terrible crime... his a evil monster
If a woman commits a terrible crime... shes just mentally Ill and possibly told by a man to do it
If girls out perform boys in education... it's because men and boys are not as smart
If boys out perform girls in education... its the patriarch's fault to keep girls down.
Why not treat men and women equal feminists? Because it seems you treat women better than men

A better question might be ‘why do people take the most extreme, fringe statements and try to pretend they’re broadly accepted as truth?’. Clearly unless one is a Buzzfeed drone a woman’s bag on the seat would be just as annoying as a man taking up three seats just to let his junk breathe. This falls into the category of looking for reasons to be upset.

Men take up on average three times as much space as women. A small woman, say 4'11", scaled up to the size of a man, say 6'7", would take up 2.4 times as much space, and that's a really, really generous allowance. If you don't recognise that patriarchy is the central problem with society, it may be because privilege blinds you to itself. Feminism is to the advantage of all. Why have half the number of doctors and twice the number of people promoted past their competence running the show? Doesn't seem to help anyone really.

"Why dont feminists treat men and women equally?"
Apparently, basic dictionary defined gender equality is no longer good enough for modern feminists. Third wave feminists who have grown up in our post-equal Rights first world have become accustomed to gaining privileges BEYOND equal Rights to men. So why stop at equality when more can always be had by playing the gender victim game?
The game went down like this. Original feminist asked for equal Right and Opportunities which do not guarantee a "fair" outcome, but they insisted on this and got it. Now that feminists have equal Rights to men, they are changing the goal posts and insisting on "fair" outcomes for women. But that is not a Right. That is a privilege which no one else gets.
The fairness that feminists are asking for now are the same privileges that women had prior to emancipation where men and the entire society were expected to take care of women as an entire group, much like we do with children today. But once they demanded legal equality, that group dynamic is over, and we are all equally emancipated individuals.
Feminists are now asking for the best of BOTH worlds. But it doesn't work that way, and they are acting like children who are feeling the effects of buyers remorse by having signed up for equality.

there was a time, less than a hundred years ago, when women had the legal status of property.
there are still men out there who think that's the way it should still be.
now, here's a truth about human psychology that applies to more than just this topic: any extreme viewpoint held by one person will draw out it's exact opposite in other people.
and there is where female supremacists come from. i ignore them, just like i ignore male supremacists.
you should, too. neither extremist speaks for the majority of their demographic group.

Because today's feminist is a fat backsided hideous lump with a personality of a demented dog, they don't care for most women, let alone men, they want power for a very select matriarchy

if a woman is sunbathing naked and a man sees her he is a peeping tom
if a man is sunbathing nude and a woman sees him he is indecently exposing himself

Because, unbelievably, there's a difference between a bag and a p*nis. Its not the same thing at all.
